As all J.D. Robb books, a good basic listen but this one drags on a bit--long narratives going on and on....where you're telling your book "ok, I get the point already--move on!"
Good enough derring-do. But, oh my. The lectures. Instead of showing the reader that cops are fabulous, wonderful, brave, moral creatures, the author tells us that. Over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and ....I won't be selecting another by this author.
Addicted to Audio Books !
Such an energizing read. So hard to stop listening, especially with such an amazing Narrator as Susan Ericksen is. J.D. Robb's "in Death" Series has made a marathon listener out of me. This series is the best addiction I have ever had. I have finished the series and I am finding it very difficult to find another series to listen to that can catch my attention as this series has. I loved each and every book in this series.
So much Talent: J.D. Robb, Susan Ericksen, the perfect compliment to each other. I so look forward to the next book in this Series.
What I love about the "in death" series is the stories are compelling and hold my interest, but the personal relationships that evolve with time is probably what keeps me coming back for more. The story about corruption on the police force is riveting alone, but add the danger for Peabody and Dallas and you have a "cannot put it down listen". Want more from Eve and the gang!
I love this author and narrator. This story was especially good. Some of her stories can overdo the sex scenes - this was just the right mix - and was none-stop action. I am embarrassed to say that I listened to the entire second half in one evening (some of it driving). I could not put it down.
The story is mediocre but the narration by Susan Ericksen is very bad. Her husky male voice sounds ridiculous. Try as I might, I could not get through this book.
Love books, preferably romance and suspense. Typically read/listen to 3-5 a week.
It boils down to whether you are a fan of the "Death Series" or not. This series is not for everyone. Me, I truly love the series. I like some books more than others, and can't wait for the next book to come out.
This book was a bit different yet I loved it. I have favorites. Although there are some similarities that you have seen or heard in other books, but it does not take away from this book. This is my favorite series. I read and listen to a lot of books but I never come away from them as satisfied as I do with this series. It seems J.D. Robb always find ways to balance the romance and suspense. I am not offended by the language. As usual I can't wait for the next installment, then I become sad and anxious for the next one.
I missed some of the other characters in this book and enjoyed a more visible role for Peabody.
Some readers like the weird and extreme sci-fi, that's not me, so this series is just right. Keep them coming.
